Family Orientation (Strength of Filipino Personality)

Family Orientation. Filipinos posses a genuine and deep love for the family which includes not simply spouse and children, parents and siblings, but also grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, godparents, and other ceremonial relatives. To the Filipino, one’s family is the source of personal identity, the source of emotional and material support and one’s main commitment and responsibility.

Concern for the family is manifested in the honor and respect given to parents and elders, in the care given to the children, the generosity towards kin in need, and in the great sacrifices one endures for the welfare of the family. This sense of family results in a feeling of belongingness and rootedness and in a basic coping mechanism.
